SDAA State Bid Calling Contest
This year’s bid calling contest was again held at the South Dakota State Fair in conjunction with the SD 4-H Foundation. Our emcee was 2011 bid calling champion Chisum Peterson, Chamberlain, SD.
Wow, what a year. Twenty-one contestants from Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska .A big thank you to our judges again this year: Jean Ferguson, Wessington Springs, SD, Roger Mentzer, Kimball, SD, Murt Wenzel, Wessington Springs, SD, Ben Meyer, Huron, SD, Fred Knight Wessington Springs, SD. Thank you to the extra clerks Wanda Tapken Wessington Springs, SD and SDAA member’s wife Joyce Fjelland, Clark, SD, the 4-H kids and all the ring men and bid takers. This was also a very close race with these fine auctioneers. Each Auctioneer brought three items for the first round of competition. Before the auction started SDAA members in charge picked nine items of similar value out of the 4-H Foundation donated items for the final round. After the first round three of the top contestants where chose by their scores and where brought back up to sell three more items and new scores tallied. We also had SDAA Hall of Fame members and past champions start to sell 4-H Foundation items. The SDAA proceeds tallied up to $2929.00 and the 4-H Foundation sale tallied brought up $7597.50. Once again the Dakotaland tent was full of buyers and big supporters of the South Dakota Auctioneers and SD 4-H foundation. Free water was again supplied by Producers.
